Hello friend!  My name is Abby!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve at West Chester University, outside of Philadelphia! I am excited to return to the same campus for a second year to invite students into authentic friendship, bibles studies, and a life with Christ! I love meeting new people & introducing myself with a warm welcoming smile!

Jesus has changed my life in a radical way, and I would love to share this with you! Come find me; I would love to chat!  🙂

My Story

I grew up on a farm in North Dakota within a catholic family. My faith was based on that one hour of Sunday Mass per week, and it did not expand more than that. During my time as a college student at North Dakota State University (NDSU), I had a radical experience of Christ’s love during a retreat. This experience radically changed my life, where I found true purpose and joy in a life with Christ!

I started leading a bible study by junior year at NDSU, and I developed joy and zeal of sharing Christ’s love with others. I know so many college students who are yearning for something true and real. I have experienced this myself, but I was introduced to the person that satisfies that yearning– Jesus Christ! My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. I want to share this truth with college students who are longing for something more.  I will follow the method that was modeled after Christ, who won over a few in authentic friendship; built them up by sharing life and investing time to teach them; and sending them off to do the same.

Each person is a beloved son or daughter of God, and he or she deserves to hear the Gospel message which they were made for.

“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly. ” John 10:10

Your Impact

When I I said “yes” to serving as a missionary through FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. By having radical trust in the Lord that He will provide for me every step of the way, I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who journey with me as I serve at West Chester University this year and next! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you, and I will reach out to chat. I would be honored to share this mission with you!
